When i imagine a girls trip i always think of relaxed time spent eating, drinking, laughing, taking photos and gossiping. As my luck would have it this past weekend was spent doing just that with the best group of girls i could wish for. The main reason for the trip was the fact that i wanted to show off the apartment i designed in Slovenia’s most famous ski resort of Kranjska Gora so we stayed there and visited as many local sights as possible. Our girls trip started on a snowy Friday afternoon, when i was especially grateful to be driving our Mercedes Cla Shooting brake for it’s safety and certain grip of the road. Unfortunately, due to the snowy road i had to wait untill our return journey on Sunday to fully test it’s speed limits but i have to say we felt very comfortable the entire time. Also, a Mercedes Benz full of girls is guaranteed to attract a lot of attention, especially if the driver (me) is a pro at parallel parking (ok, so the bystanders don’t have to know i had all of the fancy sensors and cameras guiding me, haha)After arriving to the apartment, the first thing i did was light the fire and then we ate, drank gin&tonics and bubbly while gossiping until the early hours.Kranjska Gora is known to welcome it’s visitors with tons of fun outdoor activities such as skiing, ice skating, hiking and mountain biking, plus there are a lot of mesmerizing natural sights nearby. Since we only had two days to spent there we decided on visiting Laghi Di Fuisine and Lake Jasna, but let me assure you Zelenci natural reserve, Planica or (frozen) Peričnik waterfall can be aqually breathtaking. The perfect combination of moutains, snow and sun.
Cosy afternoons were spent reading in bed!Now, i do realize imagining 6 girls sharing one bathroom might seem impossible but we made it work!
Ducklings at Lake Jasna.We took soooooooooo many photos this weekend!
Winter perfection.Thankfully, none of us is dieting so we indulged in a proper brunch feast.Maja and Katja enjoying their moring coffees before heading out into the snow. I was stunned by the nature but also thankful i recently bought a pair of proper winter boots. Smile!This weekend wouldn’t be possible without Apartma Dolinka, Mercedes Benz Slovenija, Vitamin Well, Gin Masters , MG Tonica, Jeruzalem Ormož, Hofer Slovenija and of course the perfect company of Katja from We Just Travel, Maja from Mikstejp, Valentina, Teja and Petra! Love you all!
When i was in high school i used to own a Motorola flip phone (oh, sooo cool, i know!) but later on we all kind of forgor about the brand, which has recently (after being taken over by Lenovo) rebranded itself as Motorola Mobility and issued a Moto Z family of smartphones that cater to all different types of users. I’m now a lucky owner of the Moto Play Z model which is great for my needs and i’ll try to explain why….I’d love to go into details about the technical specifications but i could never understand any of those so i’ll just say thah my Instagram game got way better since i got it thanks to it’s awesome camera (the front camera is also great – it even has a flash, which comes in really handy when taking a night time selfie). Now imagine if i splurged on the Moto Mod Hasselbrand True Zoom lens attachment! I guess that purchase would allow me to stop carrying my heavy dslr camera to furniture salons/construction sites which would be great…
Anyways, Moto Z Play is a perfect phone choice fo users who appreciate a useful phone with a long lasting (and fast charging) battery, a big screen that is perfect for writing emails and (i can’t emphasise this enough!) a good camera!
P.s. in case you, my dear readers, are interested in specifications (and can understand them) feel free to read them HERE!
Last year, i met this awesome girl, who told me her father collects traditional houses. Yes, you read that right, houses. When he sees an old house he likes he buys it; disassembles it, transport it on to his idilic property via a helicopter and reassembles/restores it. He’s been doing it for about thirty years and as far as hobbies go, this must be the most interesting one i’ve ever heard of. Of course, i HAD to see the houses in person and i’m ecstatic to be able to share them with you, my dear readers. The best new is that the daugher recently decided to turn the houses into vacation apartments. I stayed at the Vintage Vacation twice by now and i can not get enough of the peaceful energy that surrounds the place. Guests are welcomed by the owners and shown around the property (great for learning about traditional Slovene architecture). There is no wifi (except for at the main house), but a gift basket of delicious homemade/homegrown food is waiting for you as u walk into the apartment. Guests can relax and enjoy the peace or go hiking (the place is literally surrounded by mountains), biking or rafting at the gorgeous Savinja river. Amoung the houses there is a small chapel and it looks like a perfect wedding location! One of the houses serves as a museum where guests can learn about the way people used to live. Vintage Vacation is filled with love for nature and history. The small hut in the woods will soon be available for rent and i already know i’ll be going there as soon as possible!
